Victoria Warehouse in Trafford Park is set to hold the first BBC Radio 6 Music Festival at the end of February.

BBC 6 Music has announced this morning that acts including Haim, Metronomy, Franz Ferdinand and The National will be on the bill.Over thirty artists and DJs will perform over two stages and a silent disco DJ stage at the venue, a stones throw from MediaCity from where many 6 Music shows are broadcast from.

Other acts confirmed include Wild Beasts, Bombay Bicycle Club, Drenge, Jagwar Ma and Mercury Prize 2013 winner James Blake.

The Warehouse, built in the 1900s, has stood as a symbol of this city’s industrial strength and innovation for around 100 years.Transformed into an entertainment venue with a huge massively flexible floor space, it has become one of Manchester’s premier venues in recent years, along with a boutique hotel, spa, bar and bistro-style restaurant which occupy part of the first and second floor of the Victoria Warehouse Hotel, adjacent to the event space.

The two buildings that make up the Victoria Warehouse (originally the Liverpool Warehouse) were built in 1925 and 1936 and used predominantly for cotton storage and later Kelloggs and McVities. Perched on the edge of Trafford Park, conversions began in 2009
